Where Many Papal Depart ments Have Their Offices. A HISTORIC BUILDING SEAT OF APOSTOLIC COURTS OF JUSTICE AT ONE TIME. On the Site of Pompey's Theater Where Caesar Was Assassinated?Count Rossi Murdered There. EY WILLIAM E. CURTIS. Special Correspondence of The Kvenlng Star and Chicago ReCord-Herald. ROME, December 20, 1903. Only a small purt of the business of fcho holy Bee Is transacted at the Vatican. The official organization of the Catholic church is quite as large as that of the kingdom of Italy, excepting its army and navy, or any of the minor powers of Europe;, for you must remember that the pope has a parish of more than 250,000,000 souls, which In cludes every civilized nation and mission ary enterprises among the uncivilized from the arctic snows to the Jungles of the equator. All this is looked after by a staff of offi cials whose names fill a volume of 150 pages, and It includes only those of re sponsibility. The different departments presided over by the several cardinals of what is known as the curia are scattered over the city. The propaganda fide, which J is the most Important, and has ?Jurisdic- ! tlon over all the world except Europe, oc cupies an immense building on the Piazza I de Spagna, and there Cardinal Gotti, the J "red pope," as they call him, because of his enormous power, presides. The con gregation of studies is under Cardinal Sa tolli. who lives in a new wing of the old palace of St. John Lateran, which was oc cupied by the popes for a thousand years before they moved into the Vatican. A number of the other departments have their offices at the palace of the Cancel leria, built in 14&4 for Cardinal Riario, who was the power behind the throne until the Borglas obtained control of the Vatican, and had the unique honor of being a ne phew of two popes?Julius II and Slxtus IV. This huge structure, which was built of material taken from the Coliseum and from the ruins of the palaces of the Caesars, is regarded as ihe most beautiful example of early renaissance architecture in Rome, and the Interior court, or patio, which is very large, is surrounded by clois ters supported by forty-four granite col umns that were originally in the theater of Pompey. This palace was the seat of the apostolic courts of justice during the reign of the papacy in Italy, and here the Roman parliament, summoned by Plus IX in 1848, assembled. At the foot of the staircase Count Rossi, the chief reliance of the pope, was assassi nated by the students of the University of Rome in the most cowardly manner. His bust upon a bracket marks the exact spot, and his body is buried in the chapel of the Cancelleria. Upon the monument the story of his death is told in these words: "Impiorum consilio meditata caede occu bult." This was the end of the temporal power of the pope, and a few days later Pius IX was a fugitive. St. Francis Xavier was the pastor of this church in the sixteenth century, and here Pope Damasus. who reigned from 3Stl to 384, founded the pontifical library with this inscription: "I have erected this building for the archives of the Roman church; I have given it my name, which I hope will be re membered for centuries." And his wisli was fulfilled, for the chapel is still called St. Lorenzo In Damaso, and the principal court of the Vatican also bears his name. Where Caesar Was Killed. The Cancelleria, the neighboring church of St. Andrew and other buildings in the neighborhood cover the site of Pompey's Theater, in which Julius Caesar was as sassinated. On one of the neighboring streets you can see the columns embedded in the walls where the builders bricked up the spaces between them. The capitals project a few Inches, and, strange to say, the carving is preserved without bruise or blemish. It is generally supposed that Caesar was assassinated in the forum, but at that time the senate house was in ruins and Caesar received the petitions of the people temporarily In the theater of Pompey. He had been warned of a plot against his life by his wife, who begged him to send an excuse to the senate, but, being ridiculed by Brutus for his cowardice, he was car ried across the city nearly a mile and a half In a litter. During nis progress he re ceived several warnings from vigilant friends, but the conspirators surrounded him and kept off all protection. When he was seated in the senate cham ber, Tilllus approached him with a petition for his brother's pardon, and other con spirators seized this occasion to grasp his hands and embrace his neck. Caesar at first pushed them gently aside, but when they persisted he became indignant and finally, evidently suspecting treachery, re pelled them with main force. Tilllus seized his toga and pulled it violently over his arm. Then Casca, who was behind, drew his dagger, but missed his victim, and only grazed Caesar'B shoulder. The latter snatched at the dagger, ex claiming "Casca, what means this?" Whereupon Lucius. Brutus and the other assassins stabbed him again and again. Caesar cried "Thou, too, Brutua!" and fell dead across the feet of Pompey's statue. What Is claimed to be the actual statue, with Indelible blood stain's upon the calf of the leg. stands near by in the chamber of the court of appeals, In the ancient palace Spada. where I saw It yesterday, surround ed by cheap, modern drapery and gilded desks. The note book of a stenographer lay open where It had been carelessly placed upon the pedestal. Through the open door the click of a typewriter could be heard, which was not conducive to reflection. One is confronted by these startling anomalies everywhere nowadays, as X told you in my letters from Spain, but it is difficult to ad Just yourself to them. The blood stains made by Caesar's blood In the delicate marble remain today, and are believed to be genuine, but the head of the statue Is said to be that of an unknown person, for It Is not a portrait of Pompey, substituted for the original head which was knocked off when the theater was de stroyed. The Spada Palace Is one of the richest in sculptured ornament that may be found in Borne. Its decorations are superb. The library of the court of appeals Is the best collection of legal lore in Italy and the gar den Is a delight. I love to wander around in this ancient part of Rome, among the old palaces, which are associated with so much his tory. tragedy and romance Every block In the pavement is sacred to the memory or some great man or has been the scene of some event that has influenced the destiny of the nation. Nejr by is one of the most interesting ot the humble churches In Rome, built up In 1502 upon the site of a house occupied by Brigitta Brahe, wife of the Duke of Nericia, bet ter known as St. Bridget, the patron of servant girls She was not an Irish woman, however, but a Swede, and she walked all the way from the city of Lund, Sweden, to Rome to fulfill a vow. From 1330 to 1373 she lived here in a house where the church now stands wth her daughter, who was ulso canon ized as St. Catharine of Sweden, and ex ercised a powerful influence among the priests as well as the people. It is not often that you find two saints In the same family. I believe that St. Bridget and St. Catharine are the only mother and daugh ter in the calendar. St. Bridget's body is buried in the great cathedral at Upsala Sweden, but her prayer book, her rosary, her crlcifix and a mantle which she once wore are preserved here. The Famous Farnese Palace. Next door Is the famous Farnese pal ace, described by the guide books as "the most majestic and magnificent private residence in Rome," which was built by Alessandro Farnese, who was Pope Paul III from 1534 to 1530.

Baltimore, Md. dc30-70d to plunder the Coliseum and tlie ruined temples of the Forum for building ma terial. The beautiful marble from which the stairways and the balustrades arc made came from the Theater of Marcel lus, and the columns of Verde antico marble were from the Baths of Zenobia. Almost everything of pretense to beauty or artistic merit in the- palace was stolen irom some ancient pagan temple or some dead emperors palace! and Michael An gelo and Raphael also were accustomed to such tricks. They ought to have been ashamed of themselves. They must have known better than to destroy architec tural monuments of the imperial era like the Coliseum and the palaces on the Pal atine Hill, even to erect palaces for popes and cardinals. In the courtyard of the Farnese palace is a sarcophagus stolen from the beautiful tomb of Cecelia Me tella, the most imposing of all the mauso leums upon the Appi&n way. This palace until a few days ago belonged to the Bourbon kings of Naples, who Inher ited it from Elizabeth Farnese. the last of her line, who married a Neapolitan prince. After the overthrow of the Bourbon dy nasty the family used it as a home, but lived with the greatest seclusion, and few people ever saw them. They afterward rented the building to the French ambassa dor. who has only recently bought it for his government. An attempt was made to sell it to the United States several years ago, and It could have beep bought for $600,000, although it cost millions, .but General Dra per, who was ambassador:here then, would not recommend the purchase because he preferred a residence In tbe higher, health ier and newer part of the city. This is the center oX the aristocratic sec tion of old Rome, and every house has its history. Near by is the Palace Falconieri occupied for many years by Cardinal Fesch, uncle of Napoleon Bonaparte, who was a shrewd but humble priest on the Island of Corsica when the Emperor of France, at the point of the bayonet, as you might sav compelled the pope to elev'ate him to the sacred college. It is supposed that Napo leon s object was to have a loyal spy at the papal court rather than show his affection for his uncle, who, however, proved to be a very useful and respectable cardinal and ? id a great deal more good than harm. He deyeloped a remarkable taste for art and lat.ed a collection of pictures which were considered by many critics finer than an>" Private gallery in Rome.

Secretary Root has announced that all the promotions to result from the statu tory retirement of Lieut. Gen. Young, I chief of staff, on the Oth proximo, have been agreed upon and will be nominated to the Senate on the reassembling of that | body next Monday. The nominations will I include that of Maj. Gen. Chaffee, assist ant chief of staff, to be lieutenant gen i eral and chief of staff, and those of sev I eral brigadier generals to be major gen | erals, with a-view to the retirement of all save the last one named, who will be the permanent major general. That plum will undoubtedly fall to either Gens. Randall, Kobbe, Grant ,or Bell. It Is also possible that Brig. Gen. Weston, commissary general, who has I been in bad health for some time, may be made a major general and retired. It ! is said he can have the promotion on that condition, but that he prefers to remain on active duty in his present rank. Colonels who served in the civil war and have good records are to be made brigadier generals and retired in accord ance with the policy or the War Depart ment, and it is believed that the perma nent vacancies in that grade will be tilled by the appointment of young, energetic officers, who distinguished themselves In the campaigns in Cuba and In the Phil ippines. Capt. A. S. Mills, superintendent of the Military Academy; Col. Crowder of the judge advocate general's department, and Capt. J. J. Pershing, 15th Cavalry, are mentioned as likely to receive sub stantial promotions. Heiress Reported Missing. A dispatch from Meridian, Miss., last night says: It is reported here that Miss Ethel Rovell of Birmingham, Ala., who is 1 said to be an heiress to a large fortune, has disappeared, and relatives are anxious | about her. Miss Rovell has been in Merid ian since November 1 visiting her aunt, Mrs. J. M. Huskey, and was to remain here until February. On Wednesday last she left her aunt's residence to do some shopping, and has not been seen or heard of since. The young lady left Birmingham six weefcs ago to visit her aunt, Mrs. Mollie Husker at Meridian, and in a letter to her I mother, Mrs. L. J. Reynolds at Birmingham, ' several days ago she stated that she would be back in Birmingham before New Tear. The mother says that the report that the I girl is heir to a fortune of J8,<?00,00U is true, i and that she Is to come Into possession of the money a year from this time. Her parents say that the! estate was left to Miss Rovell by her aunt, Mrs. Minerva Bin ford, who died In Colorado on October 20, the will containing the peculiar pro vision that Miss Rovell must marry with in a year from the death of her aunt In order to gain "the property. It also speci fies that she must marry a certain man re siding in New York, whose name has not been made public, or "some one else of har own choice," otherwise the property reverts to the Bleeding Heart Convent In Denver. The statement that the girl has been | twice married and upon being divorced from her second husband assumed her maiden I name Is also confirmed by her parents. Both I of her former husbands reside In this sec I tion. John Temple Graves to Lecture. Arrangements have been made whereby Mr. John Temple Graves of Georgia will deliver his famous lecture.

President Parry Addresses Representa tive Gathering in St. Louis. A dispatch from St. Louis last night says: In a speech tonight before representative citizens from every line of trade and com merce in the city, David M.
